Five Points Auto Radio

This is one of my favorite little buildings in the city, which is located in the Five Points/Manhattan Heights neighborhood. At one time there were many of these little kiosk-like shops built throughout the country. However, I think this is the only one ever built in El Paso. I don't know if it has always been a repair shop for radios (car and otherwise), but it has been this kind of business for quite a while.

Several years ago I photographed the shop with a Holga-Radio TV Hospital-near Piedras Street Holga, but this picture was taken with a medium format 6x6 Zeiss Nikor.

I love this building, its old and unique. It just got a new paint job and looks a bit brighter. I hope they never lose it.

Snacks for a little deer 🦌
